Biophysics versus biochemestry


We are still far from being capable of explaining why chymotrypsin is a catalyst that is more than 1,000,000,000 times more effective than it could ever be proven in an organic model.

And about ten years ago Amsterdam University published the following on its Website:

While we already know a lot about genes and proteins, the following question is still completely open: How do genes, proteins and other molecules cooperate to make the cell function? The answer cannot be found in the knowledge of the individual components. On the contrary, cellular know-how only results from the cooperation of many components.

Now, which mechanism could render such cooperation possible? The best candidate here seems to be the electromagnetic field. First, we know from our present-day technological developments that gigantic data volumes can be rapidly transferred by infinitesimal electromagnetic signals (fibre optic cables, WLAN, Bluetooth, etc.). Maybe nature makes use of this potential of electromagnetic waves in an even more efficient way in our cells. Secondly, we know that electromagnetic waves in biology are no flight of fancy; on the contrary, the known brain waves are electromagnetic waves. Notwithstanding the fact that we learned to interpret them we still do not know precisely how they are formed and what their function is. At least, however, it is clear that larger cell areas in the brain cooperate and coordinate with the aid of the electromagnetic brainwaves.

These facts and developments resulted in an increasing reorientation of cell research from biochemistry to biophysics. Globally many research teams are concerned with, e.g. the interaction between electromagnetic fields and cells or whole organisms. In the USA, an initiative to more thoroughly examine the physical aspects in cancer research was started by the National Cancer Institute in 2010. To this end presently research teams instructed to address precisely these aspects are subsidised in twelve centres (so called Physical Sciences-Oncology Centers).

In consequence of these developments it is only logical that new concepts like VitalfeldTechnologie and their treatment forms emerge which turn towards a biophysical approach. From a scientific point of view such concepts have an at least equivalent justification as compared to the conventional biochemical concepts.
